Professional Basketball Player Mikal Bridges Signs Multi-Year Contract with G FUEL
NEW YORK, APRIL 29, 2022 -- G FUEL is pleased to announce that stellar Phoenix wing Mikal Bridges has joined its elite roster of content creators, signing a multi-year contract with The Official Energy Drink of Esports®.
“I’m ecstatic to join the G FUEL team and I’m looking forward to being an ambassador for years to come,” said Bridges. “I love G FUEL products so I’m happy to align with the brand.”
In addition to being an official ambassador for G FUEL both on and off the court, Bridges will be featured on in-store marketing throughout Arizona.
The 25-year-old has earned a reputation as an “Iron Man,” playing 337 straight games for Phoenix and not logging a single absence in four years of professional play. Including his three collegiate seasons – during which his team won two National Championships – Bridges has played 453 consecutive games.
This season, Bridges ranks first in the league in minutes – totaling 2,854 minutes on the court in regular season play and traveling 1.3 miles per matchup on defense – and is responsible for guarding scoring powerhouses. While covering all that ground and imposing opposition, Bridges helped Phoenix lead the league in the standings during the 2021-22 season with a 64-18 record. Phoenix has since moved past New Orleans in the first round of the playoffs in pursuit of the franchise’s first championship.
“Mikal Bridges is a true rising star in the league, and we’re beyond proud to welcome him to our G FUEL roster,” said G FUEL Founder and CEO Cliff Morgan. “We’re confident that Mikal will be a phenomenal ambassador for our brand as he continues to compete – and dominate – at the highest level.”
